my gripe is in no way shape or form shouldthe jets have tiebreakers over anybody. the jets have loses to balt, tenn, ne, buff, miami, cin, and pit. how in any scenrio is it fair that they could make the playoffs w. 8-8 even if everyobe else falls apart around them.

if miami blows this, theyr pathetic.

 

Miami can't blow it yet because they don't lead the wild card. Baltimore does. If Baltimore blows it then Miami can pick up the pieces

 

This scenario is sort of similar to 1991, where the Jets made the playoffs at 8-8 by beating Miami in the last game of the season. It's happened before

u get what i mean though. more than half of your wins came to nfc teams and all of your loses are to afc. how fair is to get in at 8-8 when there are so many more qualified teams not making it in the nfc. would a jets fan really be proud of making it at 8-8

Nobody would beat their chest about making it, and yes better NFC teams will be left in the cold. We'd just take it and move on.

 

But it's not about the fairness of it. IF it happens (and it probably wont) it will just be math working in the Jets favor.

Truth-be-told, I’m already quite proud of the Jets. I'm proud I'm watching my team play meaningful games in December, for the 6th straight season.

Dec. 11 2013; Jets are 6-7 with a shot at the playoffs.
Dec. 11 2012; Jets are 6-7 with a shot at the playoffs.
Dec. 11 2011; Jets are 8-5 with a shot at the playoffs.
Dec. 11 2010; Jets are 9-4 with a shot at the playoffs.
Dec. 11 2009; Jets are 7-6 with a shot at the playoffs.
Dec. 11 2008; Jets are 9-5 with a shot at the playoffs.

I’ve been a Jets fan since 1987.. and Christmas time was saved for Yankees hot-stove excitement, and to root for the Devils growing up in my house. RARELY was it ever a time to watch Jet games energized for a possible postseason berth.
..all things considered, the Rex Ryan era has been pretty good to me.

that's a good point...I mean how much meaningful mid december football would a Jets fan 1971-1980 have watched?

 

1987-1996. That team could barely win a home game in december

The system is what it is.  The top 12 games based on W-L record aren't the ones that get in.  Seattle once hosted a friggin' wild-card home game with a 7-9 record, against a team that was 11-5. 

 

As along as you have a divisional format where the division winners are guaranteed playoff berths 1-4, then occasionally a team will seem to get "screwed", but that's how it goes.  You're never going to see a pure 1-15 conference ranking where there's no divisions (or a 1-30 ranking system that ignores conferences altogether), so it's pointless to bitch about a seemingly "unworthy" team getting in at the expense of a team with a better record.  Divisions and conferences help to build rivalries...even with the anomalies, I wouldn't want to see them eliminated.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

DR wanted Rivera to be more bold ironically enough but going for it on 4th and 2 up 10 was pretty reckless.  Gave the Jets an unneccesary momentum swing.  I honestly think that's why Rex ran Richardson there on the goalline.  

 

Too bad the blocked punt gave that TD right back to them.

I don't buy it. The difference between 10 and 13 points can be very irrelevant in this game. Say Carolina kicks the field goal, who knows what the Jets do next, but if they score, the difference between 16-13 and 19-13 isn't much. It forces the Jets to go for a score later in the game (well it should).

 

I don't see any momentum change. The Jets had a great drive, but the Panthers defense and special teams stepped up when it had to. That's what you hope when you go for it. Field goals accomplish nothing in this league. 

 

Panthers had a pretty ugly red zone game. Haven't loved the play-calling there the last few games. Kept the Jets around longer than they should have, but got to give the Jets their due for that.

It wasn't about the points, it was about the momentum the Jets got by making the stop on fourth down, you gave a comatose team some life.  Of course it didn't last very long though it would have been interesting to see how the game played out if we didn't give away three TD's.


At least people can stop the delusions about the Jets making the playoffs lol (yeah yeah I know we're still mathematically alive, just wait till Josh Gordon torches Cromartie and Ed Reed for 200 yards and 2 TD's next week).

Truth-be-told.. I thought Geno has turned the corner somewhat since he was benched for Simms.

After 10 weeks of football, MM appears to have finally realized HOW to use Geno.. namely, his legs! The kid’s got 100 yrds rushing over the last 2 games, and 3 TD’s to boot. Last month, he would’ve went through his progressions, and if nobody was open, Geno would’ve either thrown a pick, or freeze and get sacked. Now you can see the difference. If it’s not there, Geno’s taking off! --and as a result, the Jets have put up 57 points over the last 2 weeks. We’re not losing games anymore because of our offense.. we’re losing games because our defense is allowing 27 points or more, and asking our offense to score 30!

 

If I’m Woody Johnson, I really examine the situation(s) on this team beyond what the win\loss record will be by seasons end. The fact that the game was 16-13 with 10 minutes left in the 4th, against a very good Carolina team on the road is indeed promising. The Jets are just VERY thin at skilled positions, and when it comes down to it, they need to play a perfect game to beat quality teams. That’s asking a lot for any team in the NFL. Blocked punts, fumbles, interceptions, these things happen during the course of the game. Deep teams that have talent can overcome. The Jets don’t .

Woody needs to ask himself.. could another coach've gotten more than 7 or 8 wins out of this team? The answer is no.

 

 

At least people can stop the delusions about the Jets making the playoffs lol (yeah yeah I know we're still mathematically alive, just wait till Josh Gordon torches Cromartie and Ed Reed for 200 yards and 2 TD's next week).

 

Step 1: Baltimore loses tonight.

Step 2: Jets beat the Browns

Step 3: San Diego, Miami & Baltimore all lose next week.

Result: A crazy Week 17 worth watching. :thumbsup: 

 

..it's all I got, and until it's officially over, I'm praying for a miracle.

Does that sum up a season or what? "Typical" pick-6. I didn't realize there could be such a thing, but I guess with Geno and the Jets, it has been.

 

The Jets need a QB in the worst way (I know, I am a genius). The difference between Carolina and the Jets are 3 players...QB play and the linebackers. In the NFL, that's usually the difference between playoffs and not.

well that's the dagger. A Justin Tucker miracle field goal followed by an idiotic pick by moron Stafford. Not that we would've made it anyway. Every single game. (Dolphins, Chargers past several weeks, Ravens getting miracle after miracle) haven't gone the Jets way. Not that the Jets have helped themselves either.

 

Surprised with how many passes Johnson dropped today. He had like 3 big drops. Looked like Stephen Hill out there. And with 38 seconds to go and 3 time outs Stafford just throwing up idiotic lobs when he likely could just take 10 yard dump offs. Baltimore was giving him that. Your first play there doesn't need to be riverboat gambler football.

 

There was a big missed PI in this game where the Detroit receiver (Durham?) had his arm locked up and quite obviously prevented him from making the catch. Heck he almost made that 1 armed play anyway. Shocked no flag there, that's a penalty pretty much always.

I will concede the Tucker kick was an amazing kick by a great football player. No miracle

 

But the calls in the viking game and the no call against Durham in the endzone were more miracles, since you had referees really acting out of character making those calls.
